General dentists provide a wide array of services that are vital to your continued health, including: Preventive services — These help you maintain good oral health by stopping disease before it takes hold in your mouth. Restorative Services — When a problem is found, your dentist will ensure you get timely and appropriate treatment. Cosmetic Procedures — Many general dentists can help you get the sparkling smile you’ve always wanted with a range of cosmetic procedures. These include teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding—even porcelain veneers. Overall Health Concerns — In many respects, your oral health can be seen as a mirror of your general health. Some dental problems may reflect issues in other parts of your body, and vice versa.
